    Glad to see an older dev like capcom turning things around. World, rise, the resident evil games. Still would like to see a little more megaman though.

    Monster hunter should hit 2 million in Japan within 2 more weeks. Not too shabby. Could be the first third party game on switch to sell more than 10 million once everything is all said and done. That is unless I'm mistaken.

    Y'know, Mega Man 11 did really well. Capcom reports it sold 1.3 million copies, making it the best selling Classic Mega Man game since Mega Man 2.
